Arrest Made In Stabbing Death Of Ferguson Woman

FERGUSON, MO (KMOX) – A suspect has been arrested in the stabbing death of 60-year-old Bernice Winston at a Ferguson apartment complex.

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson says Winston’s body was discovered around 8 o’clock this morning.

“A maintenance worker over at the apartment complex there on Park Ridge on Sherondale noticed an open door and, when he looked inside, noticed a woman who was obviously injured, laying on a bed. You could see it from outside,” the chief explained.

Jackson says Winston’s death was not random, calling it domestic. He says investigators believe she was killed sometime overnight.

Police arrested a relative who Jackson says was sitting in the corner at a table when police arrived. Winston lived alone but police believe the suspect had been living there temporarily.

The suspect is not being identified until charges are filed.
